7 Recovering From a Console Failure

User and instance information used by the Ark console is stored in tables in a postgres database. If the console application should fail, the information will persist in the console database, and will be available when the console application restarts.
Parameters in the ppcd.properties file configure the EDB Ark backup script to take automatic backups of the console database after the registration of each new user, and hourly. If you do not wish to use the Ark backup script to implement backups, you should maintain regular backups of your console database.
If you wish to manually save backups, you can use the Postgres pg_dump or pg_dumpall command to archive the console database. Then, you can then use the pg_restore command to restore the console database if necessary.
